Advanced Color Scheme - Jul 15, 2013 at 11:42AM

Could anybody point me to an example using the Advanced Color Scheme for example for a Surface 3D or any other object.

I am curious, what it can do.

Thank you!

I am catching up on email.

Attached are two examples. The second one you need to run it to see the color levels.

Oh I see now, how this is working, an example always helps.

I had the vague idea of pertubing a surface and colouring the pertubed bits according to the offset towards the original surface by attaching a level the every point of the surface and thought this feature migh help.

But maybe I have to just do two or three or four surfaces with different colours. I guess this is easier thought than done.

Thank you,
